Summit Endurance Coaching is Chris Neale, an Adelaide-based, UESCA-certified running coach who provides athletes from around the world with tailored online running programs from 5ks to ultras, road and trail.
I am an avid trail runner and UESCA certified ultramarathon running coach with 3 years coaching experience, and am eager to build my athlete base and deepen my community involvement. I am currently working with both road and trail runners, including a number of ultra athletes, and my love of coaching stems from not only my passion for running but from over a decade of one-on-one education experience in the music industry.
I have a solid grasp on the key training fundamentals that constitute effective athlete development whilst not being weighed down in the dogma of ‘one approach to rule them all’. Every athlete is unique and brings to the table a healthy number of ‘it depends’ caveats when presented with training interventions. One size does not fit all and it is in the marrying of the art and science of coaching where I truly find so much joy and purpose.
Building trust is at the core of my coaching philosophy. All the fancy training theories in the world don’t mean jack if you don’t believe in our training program and trust that I have a genuine desire to see you improve and help you achieve your goals. I work hard to promote training engagement and ensure that my athletes feel empowered in their training and that their training is sustainable within the context of their day to day lives.
